Here's an antidote: Ave Maria/Angelus Domini

And some more:
The Complete Works of Tomas Luis de Victoria - online in PDF, MID, and some MP3s
The Choral Public Domain Library - the best value in Catholic liturgical music (search "Palestrina", "Byrd", "Tallis", "Morales", etc.)

Another twentysomething's take.

Ah....I feel better already. Thank you.

You might be interested in this group:

Trio Mediaeval

(I'm sorry; I can't get the link to work, but it's available on amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.)

I heard these ladies singing on a local (NYC-based) TV show and thought their voices were incredible. The songs they sing on the album would, of course, have been sung only by men at the time of their writing, but I tell you...the female voices on the recording are...ethereal.

BTW...I find the traditional hymns and even chant MUCH easier to sing. They say they want participation, but how can a regular gal "participate" in singing songs only highly professional Broadway performers can sing?

Regards,
